These visits offer time to address your health concerns, check in on your overall well-being and perform recommended, age-based examinations, screenings, testing and vaccinations. Depending on your age, we will talk about lifestyle choices, managing risky behaviors and address your most personal concerns around mental health and aging gracefully. You will generally see your primary provider at these visits.
No matter how well we care for ourselves, illness and injury occur. Sometimes the problem is obvious, like the flu, an abscess, a broken bone or a laceration, and sometimes we just don't feel like ourselves but aren't sure what is wrong. As your medical home, we are here for you in a way that stand-alone urgent care centers cannot be. We offer same day provider visits and our in-house lab and radiology facilitate rapid evaluation and diagnosis so you leave with information and a treatment plan. Walk-in nurse services for established patients include vaccinations, blood pressure and weight checks, PPD placement and suture removal.
Some things in life stick with us for a while. This includes chronic conditions that are managed until they resolve, come and go with the seasons, or sometimes remain with us for a lifetime. We know that having an ongoing health concern can affect more than physical or mental health and value our role caring for patients as whole individuals rather than through the lens of their disease. Some chronic illnesses we manage on our own and others we collaborate with local specialists such as cardiologists, psychiatrists and oncologists. A few examples of chronic conditions are asthma, heart disease, diabetes, IBD, psoriasis, hormone disorders, malignancy, mood disorders, and allergies.
